Television Addict

The Victims

Something Old, Something New is two years old today and to celebrate I am re-posting my first ever track, Television Addict by Perth punk legends The Victims.

Plus, to continue another theme of posting an original track and multiple cover versions, I am including interpretations of this definitive Perth punk track by:-

The M-16's

The Hoodoo Gurus


I am aware of covers of Television Addict by You Am I and The Hellacopters, so if someone (anyone?) would like to give Something Old, Something New a birthday gift and forward a copy of either (or both!?) versions of this track, I will gladly post it.

The Victims - Television Addict

The M-16's - Television Addict

The Hoodoo Gurus - Television Addict

Teengenerate - Television Addict

Woohoo!! - A birthday gift!

here's a copy of You Am I's version, with much thanks to Jon @ underneathica. Go and check out Jon's groovy taste in music.

As an extra special birthday gift to all of my lurkers, here's a very rare 1978 live recording of The Victims playing Television Addict:-
